What does the orange exclamation point mean in the corner of a dataset icon

Looking at datasets in the data section... sometimes a dataset has an orange exclamation point at the top in the corner of the icon for the dataset (see attached picture).


when you hover/click on it... nothing happens.Β  What does this mean?

    Try going to the associated dataflow for that dataset and click on history. It is likely that the dataflow failed and that is why you are seeing the exclamation point on the resulting dataset.

    @JeffsnakeΒ I'm having the same experience and when I go into the associated dataflow, everything runs as expected and there aren't any failed errors.


    Anyone have any other ideas for the exclamation point? Thanks!

  • Hi @Jeffsnake & @AlexaFerrer, how did you go with this?

    There could be one of a few things happening:

    When you look at the 'Lineage' of your dataset, and you click on the dataflow that is highlighted in Orange, it should mention under the name/heading of your dataflow the reason for this needing your attention (i.e. Field "xxxx" does not exist).

    It could also be that there is a temporary server issue during data processing (i.e. Many dataflows are updating at the same time or an external issue on Domo side).

    Another thing to check is, in 'Accounts', whether one of the account credentials used to pull your data is showing the attention symbol. If so, you would need to reconnect your account (i.e. Re-Authentication on the platform/app side).
